Blue Jays place LHP Liriano on DL because of sore shoulder

Justin Smoak also hit a home run, a two-run shot in the sixth inning, for the Blue Jays (17-21), who have won five straight.

He completed his jubilant home-run scamper around the bases and touched down at home plate into the awaiting arms of his elated teammates, but quickly broke free from the frenzy in order to protect his uniform. Toronto is also 0-6 in their last six during game four of a series, the under is 13-5-1 in the Jays' last 19 home games versus a left-handed starter. "I didn't want it to rip completely".

The fact that they've begun the climb back before those regulars return only adds to the encouragement, not to mention the confidence of players such as Ryan Goins and Ezequiel Carrera, who are getting added playing time.

"His jersey's not even recognizable anymore", said Pillar. Pillar walked and Darwin Barney struck out swinging. "It's the first time my mother has been here for Mother's Day, although she has been here before".

"I mean, yeah, but can we keep this about the game?" said the big righthander when asked about bleeding. On Sunday, James Pazos blew a one-run lead by giving up a two-run homer before Diaz served up Pillar's walk-off. Toronto's four-game sweep of the Mariners was its first since the Blue Jays beat the Minnesota Twins in four straight in August 2015.

Looking back to just one week ago, Toronto lost another two of their main men in Kendrys Morales and Aaron Sanchez.

"That's really what cooled off obviously, our bats", Servais said.

Blue Jays pitchers have given up an AL-high 65 doubles this season. Bergman will become the 8th different pitcher to make at least 1 start for the Mariners this season.

Dyson gave Seattle its first lead of the game in the top of the sixth, singling to shallow centre field to drive Danny Valencia in from second. "He's having a tremendous year".

The fortunes of the Toronto Blue Jays seems to be taking a turn for the better. Dominic Leone - dinged for a homer by Jarrod Dyson in the seventh - and Ryan Tepera assumed the relief duties with the latter racking up his third win.

Blue Jays: LHP Francisco Liriano (sore shoulder) was placed on the 10-day DL.

Travis didn't move off third until Mariners catcher Carlos Ruiz threw to second to try to catch Maile.

"I've definitely (stolen home) before, but it's not a play you see a ton", said Travis. For the season, the M's are hitting a robust.283/.370/.438 at home and.245/.321/.409 on the road. Smoak was a classic 'Three True Outcomes' guy as 48.9 percent of his trips to the dish resulted in a strikeout, walk or home run. It would be his first major-league outing of the season.

Mariners: 2B Robinson Cano (right quadriceps) missed his third straight game. He had been designated for assignment Tuesday when RHP Mike Bolsinger had his contract selected from Buffalo.

"He says: 'We started out 12-24, '" Gibbons said, leaning back in the leather chair of his office in the Jays clubhouse Friday afternoon, and recalling the Beeston conversation. C Russell Martin (left shoulder) played catch before the game.

The five shutout innings Biagini threw against the Seattle Mariners in Friday night's 4-0 victory will only further encourage the endeavour.

Liriano is 2-2 this season with a 6.35 earned-run average over seven starts.

There were runners in scoring position in each of his five innings, and the leadoff batter reached four times. He turned out to be one of the best mid-season pickups in the league previous year, going 2-2 with a 2.92 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 49.1 innings down the stretch for the Blue Jays.
